Old boat gets a new look!

Four years ago I sold my drift boat to make it through a rough patch. So when I had the chance to get a new one I was all over it. The boat is a ClackaCraft 16 ft. weight forward model. It was once sunk on the Green and recovered. My great friend Pete had some work done to it so he could guide out of it. When he got a new boat I kept bugging and pestering him into parting ways with it. Finally I did and I was a happy boat owner again. Now my dad gets a chance to see it and he said we can make it look brand new. After lots of fiberglass work and body filler we have gotten to the painting stage. We have got two coats of primer on and tomorrow we will be painting the finish coat. I am super excited to have this beauty done. Here is a few pics of the boat. Since my computer crashed I havent gotten the early stage pics but I hope to have them soon. Thanks for reading and tight lines!

  1. It feels good to be a boat owner! From the way I see it, it looks like there's so much to be done to make it look decently new again. With you and your dad working on it together, I'm sure everything will turn out perfectly.
